Easy Halloween hairstyle ideas

It’s nearly Halloween and you know what that means… an excuse to dress up! This is when we can bring out our creative side, with all sorts of fun, creepy or inventive outfits. And, of course, a Halloween hairstyle to match!

But with everything going on in the world right now, it might not be possible to have the usual Halloween party. Instead, most people will probably have tiny gatherings, but this isn’t a sign to slack on your hair game. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of simple but awesome Halloween hairstyle ideas that you could rock to your Halloween night.


Ice Queen

If you grew up watching Narnia then you know exactly who the Ice Queen is. Also known as the White Witch, she is scary, wicked, and if we’re honest, she’s super cool. She may be a baddie, but she definitely carries herself like a true queen of the land. So if that’s appealing to you, give this look a try. The best part is, you don’t even have to bleach or dye your hair for this Halloween hairstyle. You could invest in a wig for the occasion.


Harley Quinn

If you’re looking for a Halloween favourite, Harley Quinn is a sure winner. Harley is loved for being funny, beautiful and definitely not to be messed with. If anyone can handle her stuff, it’s Harley Quinn. This Halloween hairstyle works best with blonde hair, and to get the look you would simply split your hair into two ponytails. Then, you would need to add the iconic blue and pink tips to each ponytail. For this, you can dye the ends or use hair chalk or hair spray for a temporary colour.

If you choose to bleach your hair or dye the ends, your hair will need some extra TLC. Keep your hair strong, healthy and hydrated with the Dove Intensive Repair Deep Treatment Mask at least once a week. It’s formulated with a unique blend of Nutri-Keratin actives, which helps rebuild and strengthen your hair, strand by strand.

Looking for an iconic TV reference? We say Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice! To get this Halloween hairstyle, you don’t even have to dye your hair. Use temporary colour options to get this stand-out green shade, such as hair chalk or colour hair spray.

For this Halloween hairstyle to look its best, you need to add some texture to it. Use a texturising product to give it this effect. If you’re going for a crazy Beetlejuice look like in this image, spritz some of the Toni&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray onto your hair and use your fingers to make it slightly messy. The spray will also give your hair a bit of hold, so it stays that way all night.


Fallen Queen

We’ve seen the Ice Queen, but may we suggest… the fallen queen? The good queen who lost her throne to the baddies… and got it back at the end. We’re thinking the White Queen from Alice in Wonderland, Freya from The Huntsman and even real queens throughout history, like Queen Nefertiti. Put your own spin on it with a crown accessory and a veil. And don’t be afraid to add a pop of colour, like these bronze-coloured locs.
